Synthesis of Chiral Porphyrins through Pd-Catalyzed
[3+2] Annulation and Heterochiral Self-Assembly**
Masatoshi Mizumura, Hiroshi Shinokubo,* and Atsuhiro Osuka*
Well-ordered constructions of self-assembled porphyrins have
been intriguing targets in terms of potential applications in
materials science, reaction catalysis, and duplication of
photosynthetic functions. The coordination interaction
between the central metal atom and the peripheral ligand of
a porphyrin has often been employed to construct self-sorting
porphyrin architectures.[1, 2] We have also reported the selfsorting assembly of pyridine-appended meso-meso-linked
zinc(II) diporphyrins.[3] However, formation of a porphyrin
assembly on the basis of selective heterochiral recognition is
quite rare,[4] despite its wider potential in the programmed
construction of molecular systems, in which several different
functions are integrated by noncovalent interactions.
Chiral porphyrins have also been receiving much attention as scaffolds for precise molecular recognition, construction of supramolecular structures, and asymmetric catalysis.[5]
The synthetic strategy towards chiral porphyrins often
involves the introduction of chiral motifs to the porphyrin
periphery. Alternatively, a restricted bond rotation at sterically encumbered positions can generate axial chirality.
However, in many cases, a chiral element is connected to a
porphyrin through a single bond, thus giving some flexibility
to the system. In contrast, chirality that is supported rigidly by
some fused structures would be advantageous to provide a
defined chiral environment. Here we wish to describe the
efficient palladium-catalyzed synthesis of novel fused chiral
porphyrins. Owing to the unsymmetrical meso,b-fused structures, these porphyrins are chiral in a rigid situation. The
formation of heterodimers of benzoazanorbornene-fused
porphyrins through chiral discrimination is also reported.
To incorporate a chiral fused structure into the porphyrin
periphery, we undertook a Pd-catalyzed [3+2] annulation
strategy, since of meso-bromoporphyrins with alkynes provided 7,8-dehydropurpurins.[6] We anticipated that the use of
reactive strained alkenes such as norbornene derivatives
instead of alkynes would furnish novel fused norbornenesubstituted porphyrins through the similar carbopalladation/

cyclization sequence. Although there are several examples of
Pd-catalyzed annulation of norbornenes,[7] its application to
porphyrins has not been investigated. The reaction of
nickel(II) (1 Ni) with norbornene proceeded smoothly to
afford 2 Ni in 79 % yield in the presence of Pd(OAc)2/ P(otol)3 as the catalyst (Scheme 1). Locos and Arnold reported

ESI-TOF mass spectrum. The 1H NMR spectrum of 2 Ni in
CDCl3 showed six doublets and a singlet which were assigned
to b protons, thus confirming the unsymmetrical meso,b-fused
structure. The use of benzooxanorbornene and benzoazanorbornene as the reactive alkene partners also yielded the
corresponding products 3 Ni and 4 H in good yields from 1 Ni
and 1 H, respectively. Free base porphyrin 1 H underwent this
annulation without metalation by palladium. The addition of
the porphyrin moiety to the norbornene skeleton was

perfectly stereoselective in each case, and X-ray diffraction
analysis of 3 Ni revealed an exo-fused stereochemistry (see
the Supporting Information).[9]
With an efficient protocol to synthesize these chiral
porphyrins in hand, we then examined the self-assembly of
the zinc porphyrins. Benzoazanorbornene-fused porphyrin
5 Znrac, namely a racemic mixture of 5 ZnR,S and 5 ZnS,R, was
prepared by removal of the tert-butoxycarbonyl (Boc) group
of 4 H followed by insertion of a ZnII center.[10] The 1H NMR
spectrum of 5 Znrac in CDCl3 showed substantial upfield shifts
for the b protons. This is typical of face-to-face porphyrin
dimers because of the shielding effect of the porphyrin ring.
All the b protons appeared in the similar region as those of
1 Ni in the 1H NMR spectrum of 5 Znrac in [D5]pyridine. These
facts strongly suggested that 5 Znrac forms a discrete assembly
in CDCl3. In addition, several minor signals were also
observed (see below). Finally, X-ray diffraction analysis
revealed that 5 Znrac formed a dimeric assembly mediated
by the complementary coordination between the nitrogen and
zinc atoms (Figure 1 a, b).[9] Importantly, 5 Znrac assembles
into a heterochiral dimer (5 Znrac)2, where one enantiomer of
5 Znrac favors dimerization with its antipode.
Efficient chiral separation of 4 H by HPLC was accomplished with ethyl acetate/hexane (1:2) as eluent. Each
fraction was separately converted into 5 ZnR,S and 5 ZnS,R

both in an enantiomerically pure form. Their 1H NMR
spectra in CDCl3 were identical. All signals for the b protons
were again shifted upfield, but importantly the spectrum was
totally different from that of the heterochiral dimer (5 Znrac)2.
This indicates that 5 Znchi (5 Znchi represents either 5 ZnR,S or
5 ZnS,R) also assembles into discrete, but different porphyrin
oligomers. The homochiral dimeric structure of (5 ZnR,S)2 was
elucidated by X-ray diffraction analysis (Figure 1 c, d).[9] It
was also found that the minor peaks in the 1H NMR spectrum
of 5 Znrac correspond to those of heterochiral dimer (5 Znchi)2,
with (5 Znrac)2 predominant in CDCl3 (ratio of 10:1). These
results reveal that heterochiral dimer (5 Znrac)2 and homochiral dimer (5 Znchi)2 coexist in a solution of 5 Znrac in CDCl3
with strong preference for the heterochiral dimer. The UV/
Vis absorption spectra of 5 Znchi in CHCl3 showed no changes
in the range from 10 7 to 10 5 m, but the fluorescence spectra
were concentration-dependent in the range of 10 9 to 10 7 m
(see the Supporting Information). These observations indicate that some (5 Znchi)2 dissociates into monomer 5 Znchi
under dilute conditions. A good fit for the observed sigmoidal
curve was obtained by assuming formation of a porphyrin
dimer, which affords an association constant of Khomo = 1.2 C
107 m 1 for the homochiral dimer. On the other hand, an
association constant of Khetero = 1.8 C 108 m 1 was determined
for the heterochiral dimer, thereby confirming the preference
for this species.
The X-ray crystal structure of (5 Znrac)2 shows the two
porphyrin macrocycles are parallel with an interplanar
distance of 4.56 D. The plane consisting of C5, Zn1, and
C15 is also parallel to the plane consisting of C5’, Zn2, and
C15’. On the other hand, two macrocycles in (5 Znchi)2, are
tilted at 14.088. The plane consisting of C5, Zn1, and C15 is
tilted at 11.368 to the plane consisting of C5’, Zn2, and C15’.
This kinked structure of (5 Znchi)2 means that the dipole
moment is not cancelled out, which leads to the preferential
formation of the heterochiral dimer.
The selective assembly of the heterochiral dimer is due to
chiral discrimination of one enantiomer with its antipode.
This assembly allows the formation of a porphyrin heterodimer, which would be an ideal platform to incorporate two
different functions into self-assembled molecules. To confirm
this, porphyrin 6 Zn, having 4-tert-butylphenyl groups at the
meso positions, was synthesized in a similar manner. 1H NMR
measurements of 6 Zn confirmed the same assembling
behavior as 5 Zn (see the Supporting Information). The NH
signals of (5 ZnR,S)2 and (6 ZnS,R)2 were observed at different
chemical shifts in the NMR spectrum recorded in CDCl3
(Figure 2 a, b). After mixing (5 ZnR,S)2 and (6 ZnS,R)2 and
heating at 40 8C, the signals due to (5 ZnR,S)2 and (6 ZnS,R)2
almost completely disappeared and the signals assigned to the
heterodimer 5 ZnR,S·6 ZnS,R became predominant (Figure 2 c).
These results clearly indicated the formation of the heterodimer through a pseudo-heterochiral association and that
5 ZnR,S·6 ZnR,S is more stable than each homochiral association. In sharp contrast, the similar experiment using (5 ZnR,S)2
and (6 ZnR,S)2 led to the appearance of two small new NH
signals corresponding to 5 ZnR,S·6 ZnR,S. The changes in the
spectra were only minor even after heating at reflux for three
days in chloroform (Figure 2 f). Finally, the heterodimeric

structure of 5 ZnS,R·6 ZnR,S was unambiguously elucidated by
X-ray diffraction analysis of a crystal grown by vapor
diffusion of methanol into a solution of (5 ZnS,R)2 and
(6 ZnR,S)2 in chloroform (Figure 1 e).[9]
In summary, we have achieved the expeditious synthesis
of novel chiral porphyrins with fused norbornene moieties by
the use of a Pd-catalyzed [3+2] annulation strategy. The
versatility of this strategy has been demonstrated in the
synthesis of benzoazanorbornene-fused zinc porphyrins,
which assemble to form a stable heterochiral dimer by
complementary coordination in both the solid and solution
states. The heterochiral assembly enables the formation of a
heterodimer constructed from two components through chiral
recognition. All these self-assembled porphyrin dimers were
unambiguously characterized by X-ray diffraction analysis.
These novel chiral porphyrins could also serve as chiral
catalysts in combination with central metal ions. This issue
would be a further challenging subject. Investigations on
functionalized heterolytic porphyrin dimers are currently
